  • How long does acupressure take to work?

    Most feel results immediately. For some things, it takes consistency over time. READ MORE

  • How do you stop a toothache fast with acupressure?

    Acupuncture and herbal remedies for teeth and gums. Most of my work is not for first aid issues and fits more for chronic problems of teeth and gums. READ MORE

  • Why is acupuncture so relaxing?

    In order to understand why acupuncture is so relaxing, we have to understand body mechanisms. In short, the body is normally in a parasympathetic phase. This is a fight or flight reaction to stress. It can show up in the form of nervousness and inability to relax. Acupuncture helps create a parasympathetic shift, into a rest and relax mode, for optimal healing! READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture hit a nerve?

    Trained expert acupuncturists should do their best to avoid “hitting nerves.” Some points, like for sciatica/back pain, we are trying to access the nerve to release the shooting pains. Other points are incredibly minuscule. With each body being different, it’s the practitioner’s responsibility to check with the patient to ensure no sharpness occurs on these insertions to avoid discomfort of nerve activation. READ MORE

  • Which is better acupuncture or acupressure?

    They’re both different, even though along the same lines. It’s almost like acupressure is a gentler form. It’s more like massage. It triggers similar points, meridians, and Qi. I’m unsure as to which would be considered “better,” but it seems to me for getting results for healing, acupuncture would be more effective, since it immediately activated the Qi of the points needed to heal. Both have their place. ️ READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture release trapped emotions?

    As a specialist in integrative care, absolutely! However, not all practitioners are intuitive or insightful enough to allow this to fully happen. To your health, Dr. Jessica Newman READ MORE

  • How quickly does acupuncture work for back pain?

    In more than 9,600 cases of back pain treated in my clinic, ~91% of them would, thank G-d, feel better, immediately… Another ~9% would struggle. In clinical experiences, it seems not only does the practitioner/patient rapport, as well as how long and exacerbated the problem is. READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture work on feet?

    Yes, acupuncture works on feet very well. READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture help your vision?

    In acupuncture school, we were told that after age 8, it's very challenging to improve vision. But my father, Dr. Philip Newman, a master healer, improved his vision with eye exercises. My vision went from a -4.00 to a -3.25 when I did pilates for a full year consistently. A leading ophthalmologist told me when we strengthen the abdominals, we strengthen all the organs and tissues, including the eyes! For more, newmansacupilates@gmail.com READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture cure cataracts?

    I have no direct experience with cataracts in the clinic. However, acupuncture does increase circulation and overall health and well being, so definitely worth a shot! But it would take time and consistency. READ MORE

  • Can you get an infection from acupuncture?

    An infection from acupuncture? The only circumstances I could ever imagine, God forbid, for this to take place is if the practitioner didn’t pass/practice proper regulatory standards such as clinic cleanliness, needle disposal, fresh and sealed needle package usage, etc. In the proper circumstances, there should never be any concern of infections arising from acupuncture usage.
